A MAP OF VIRTUE to Open 6/20 at convergence-continuum

convergence-continuum continues its 2014 Season with the regional premiere of Erin Courtney's 2012 Obie Award-winning play A Map of Virtue. Part interview, part comedy, part middle-of-the-night ordeal, A Map of Virtue is a perfectly symmetrically-structured play guided by a tiny bird statue.

An unlikely friendship develops between Mark and Sarah when he gives her a small bird statue during a chance encounter. Although inextricably linked, they remain strangers until they are forced, along with Sarah's husband Nate and Mark's boyfriend Victor, to share a frightening weekend in a cabin deep in the woods that derails into a quiet, pitiless nightmare. The play is structured around a symmetrical arrangement of themes, organized around seven virtues which are announced by the narrator - the tiny statue of a meadowlark. Though it begins as a quirkily humorous rumination on chance and symmetry, Ms. Courtney's drama alters into a tense and enigmatic exploration of obsession, attachment, isolation and the murky middle of the night - when bad things sometimes happen.

A Map of Virtue is directed by convergence-continuum's Artistic Director, Clyde Simon, and features company actors Lucy Bredeson-Smith, Robert Hawkes, Mike Majer, Jack Matuszewski and Eric Sever and newcomers to the Liminis stage Kat Bi and Logan Smith.

A Map of Virtue opens Friday, June 20 and runs at 8 pm, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays through July 12 at the Liminis, 2438 Scranton Rd., Cleveland, OH 44113 in the historic Tremont neighborhood. Tickets are $15 general admission, $12 for seniors and $10 for students. Reservations and information are available at convergence-continuum.org or 216-687-0074.

A Map of Virtue is the third and final play in convergence-continuum's three-play series "The Menagerie Surreal," which included Lobster Alice in March/April and Swimming in the Shallows in May. The series is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
